Romantic Female Victorian Steampunk Names

Just because a name is romantic, doesn't mean it's not a badass one. In fact, romantic names can be quite deceiving. Take the lead character from the Alexia Tarabotti novels. Alexia is a perfectly lovely name, but behind that name lies a pretty tough woman.

Elegant by nature, romantic names can give the impression of innocence, or they can emote a sense of mystery.

There is something quite alluring about a badass steampunk female with a romantic name.

Straightforward Female Victorian Steampunk Names

Not all female Victorian names are romantic. There are many that are more down to earth. These are names that may not be quite as feminine or glamorous, but still project a strong woman, like Hester Shaw from the Mortal Engines series.

They tend to be shorter, and during the Victorian era, they weren't always given to the ladies of the upper classes. A little bit sassy, you know women with these names mean business.

Strong Male Victorian Steampunk Names

When people think of Victorian era male names, they sometimes think of soft-spoken noble ones. Ones that connote an enjoyment of the finer things in life, while living off of inherited wealth.

But don't forget the strong male names of the time. These names can be found in all walks of life, and hint at strength and bravery. A good example of this type of name is Alek (Prince Aleksandar of Hohenberg) from the the Leviathan series.

Of course, strong names don't always represent the good guys. They can also exemplify a touch of evil, or a more sinister side. But let's face it, bad guys can be pretty cool too.
